Occurrence and causes of high-level turbulence: final report
The research reported in this paper has been conducted during the period 15 June 1961 to 15 July 1963. The project has been organized in three phases: 1. Photographic field measurement program. 2. Aircraft measurements. 3. Synoptic and theoretical studies on clear-air turbulence (CAT) and atmospheric mesostructure. The research results of this project have been published in the reports listed in the references (1 through 15). This final report summarizes the findings and states recommendations as to application of results and areas of future research.
